The exhibition celebrates all things creative in Peckham, inviting people that have a connection to Peckham to contribute artworks to exhibit together at Peckham Platform.

Peckham Platform announces its sixth annual OPEN exhibition! This exhibition is an opportunity to celebrate all things creative in Peckham and invites people that have a connection to Peckham to contribute artworks to exhibit together at Peckham Platform.

The past five years have seen more than 600 artworks to adorn the gallery walls in the run up to Christmas in a fantastic display of local talent.

All works that meet the submission criteria will be included (see submission form for criteria, a £5 submission fee applies). All works on display during the exhibition will be available for sale directly from the artist – perfect for last minute Christmas shopping ideas.

Film and performance works will be showcased on a special LIVE Night on Friday 4 December.

At the end of the exhibition, 2D and 3D artworks must be collected from Peckham Platform on Saturday 19 & Sunday 20 December 2014, 10am – 5pm.
